The flag of East Timor was adopted in 2002, but the design has been in use since 1975.  It was first raised at midnight on May 19, replacing the U.N. flag as the country became independent. The yellow stands for "the traces of colonialism in East Timor's history," the black "the obscurantism that needs to be overcome," the red "the struggle for national liberation," the star as a guiding light and the white for peace.
